Dec-04-20 The Six Word Memoir template we are using
Dec-04-20 A link to the template page

We invite you to build, learn, and exchange ideas with us on this week's Teachers Teaching Teachers https://teachersteachingteachers.org on Wednesday evening, December 2 at 9E/8C/7M/6P.

We are planning to use an old, sturdy project, Six Word Memoir https://www.lrng.org/youth-voices/playlist/six-word-memoir-3 to learn together how to create visual, interactive narratives a brand new, dynamic, easy-to-use tool on Youth Voices that allows you to create Web Stories. (See https://qodeinteractive.com/magazine/google-web-stories/)

Web Stories are a free, open-web, visual storytelling format for the web, enabling you to easily create visual narratives with engaging animations and tappable interactions, and immerse your readers in great and fast-loading full-screen experiences. https://wordpress.org/plugins/web-stories/
We will invite you to capture an element of your identity in just SIX WORDS.
Legend has it that when Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a six word novel, he came up with, “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Inspired by Hemingway’s short story, SMITH magazine asked their readers for their own six word memoirs in 2006. They challenged readers and famous writers alike to submit their own six word memoirs for a contest. People of all ages sent in short life stories in droves, and the results were poignant, hilarious, devastating and good lessons to all. (Smith Magazine)
A six word memoir is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.
WHAT'S YOUR STORY? https://www.lrng.org/youth-voices/playlist/six-word-memoir-3
Join us to test a Six Word Memoir template we've built to introduce youth to the Web Stories format. (See https://www.youthvoices.live/web-stories/six-word-memoir-template/) Come use the template yourself to build your own Six Word Memoir as a Web Story.
Together we will take moments throughout the hour to consider how we are learning this new tool, what the implications are of these reflections for our students, and what additional or revised supports your students might need to get started with Web Stories on Youth Voices.
Let's build together. Let's reflect on our learning with each other. And let's imagine new possibilities for our students!
Join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers https://teachersteachingteachers.org on Wednesday evening, December 2 at 9E/8C/7M/6P.
